Shredded Chicken

Easy way to get shredded chicken ready for future meals.

Shredded Chicken


  • 3 lbs Chicken frozen
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Chicken Broth optional


  • Put all ingredients in a crockpot
  • Cook low for 5 hours or high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours
  • Shred with a pair of forks

This shredded chicken is really good for other meals. It is also easily freezable. One of my most used recipes due to its convenience.

You can add so many spices during the cooking if you want, like turmeric or Cajun.

The shredding is the worst part, it takes some effort to go through that much chicken. I have heard you can put the chicken in food processor instead, but I have not tried. This way I get to choose how small I want the pieces.

I normally separate the chicken to freeze in 4oz batches. It is a good amount for adding to pizza or biscuits or quesadillas.
